Abstract : A beta-glucan hydrolases showing a marked specificity for beta-1,3-glucosidic linkages was found to be closely associated with the cell wall of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Intact log-phase cells showed 40% of the enzyme activity measured in the cell homogenate. Cellular enzyme activity reached a maximum during the logarithmic growth phase and decreased sharply in the stationary. The possible role of the enzyme in cell wall extension in discussed. (Author)
